      And for those of us who are more modest, you can get bobcat and fox urine from the local Agway to keep the pests away.

      P.S. Some critters aren't detered by the scent of human urine. While camping along the AT, I had a VERY close encounter with a deer at about 4 am while answering the call of nature (he came to within three feet of me wondering what I was doing). There are no bathrooms in the backcountry and given the number of animals I've seen while camping (and I've gone backpacking for over 17 years), I guess I don't produce enough of a "predator scent".

      Okay, I have put off telling you all about this for too long, now. I cannot contain the secret any longer! 
      Most wild animals will shy away from the "scent of a predator".
      I know that this may seem immodest for some, but have you tried "marking your territory"?    By this I mean, saving your own urine and simply pouring it around the area.  I cannot detect the scent, but evidently the beasties can, even after a rainstorm. I know it works for me and I have armadillos, voles, squirrels, rabbits, wild dogs and deer.  I "refresh" the scent about once a month.
      Good Gardening to you!
